Resources while social distancing

We know our restoration community is facing many challenges during these uncertain times. clean-ups have been cancelled, plantings postponed, and field trips suspended, but we’re also seeing positivity and hope spread online!

The RAE Alliance, made up of 10 organizations across the country, are jumping in to provide resources and tools to see us through this difficult time. Now that we’re staying home, why not learn about ospreys on the Chesapeake Bay, all the way from the Puget Sound?

If you’ve got little ones at home in need of some fun education, or are simply looking for a few minutes of relaxation, check out these resources below. As new tools are developed, we will send them out!
